(DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.) -- An Army private wanted in Los Angeles County, Calif., for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl was captured in Florida on Friday.
Authorities say 20-year-old Daniel Brazelton was taken into custody Friday night after officers found him hiding out in a motel room in Daytona Beach. Brazelton had been on the run since Feb. 11, when he escaped custody in Georgia, where he was being held pending extradition to Los Angeles County. Authorities say Brazelton was taken to Fort Stewart for medical treatment, and while being transported back to Liberty County jail, he managed to escape from the Army transport vehicle.
Brazelton, of Palmdale, Calif., faces charges of rape of a minor and for escaping custody. He has been taken to a Florida jail, where he will await extradition to Los Angeles County.
